Love Island’s Iain Stirling gets dream role hosting tour of new whisky centre

Love Island narrator Iain Stirling has handed his dream job showcasing a new whisky attraction in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

In celebration of its newly-refurbished Visitor Experience in Speyside, Scotland, The Glenlivet has partnered with the MTV Cribs host and comedian to highlight the centre.

The episode of Cribs sees Iain exploring every inch of the new home; from the artisan-built interiors to the interactive barley field, as well as the all important Still Room, where 21 million litres of quality whisky is distilled every year.

Throughout the episode, Iain uncovers the brand’s unique heritage, all whilst adding his own humorous and contemporary twist – even telling off an MTV crew member for helping himself to a dram of The Glenlivet.

Whisky lover Iain said: “Being a huge fan of whisky meant it was an absolute honour to be given the key to The Glenlivet’s newly refurbished home.

“It is such a beautiful place, so rich in history and Scottish charm, that I just had to invite MTV Cribs to check it out. From start to finish, the distillery takes you on an adventure into the mystery and intrigue that shrouds the original Speyside single malt.

“Whether you’re an enthusiast like me or new to the category, The Glenlivet Visitor Centre is a whole new way to experience whisky”

After 18 months of extensive renovations following investment from parent company Chivas Brothers, The Glenlivet continues to set the standard in quality and taste that defines Speyside single malt whisky, with the MTV partnership being another example of the Scotch brand bringing the category to life in an original and innovative way.

With a huge variety of experiences on offer, The Glenlivet’s Visitor Centre makes the perfect day out for whisky lovers old and new to enjoy. It is now open to the public, to book tours and tastings, visit www.theglenlivet.com.
